Hi

 

My DNS server randomly keeps using a different IP. All I have to do to fix it temporarily is click on troubleshoot now when chrome gives me a grey screen telling me I can't connect to the website. After waiting 20 seconds and scanning the problem, it says: "The DNS server isn't responding." But then it works again. Then about an hour later it would randomly stop working again. I tried scanning my PC for virusses but there weren't any. Anyone knows what to do?

Try changing your DNS servers to Google servers 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
